Free webinar for Year 13 students in West Sussex

After a year that has seen unprecedented disruption to the kinds of careers and progression advice young people typically receive, Sussex Learning Network in partnership with Chichester College Group, is using Uni Connect funding to provide a free webinar open to all Year 13 students across West Sussex.

The webinar will give students a clear idea of the course options still available and hints, tips and advice to ensure they make the best possible choice.

Fay Lofty, schools liaison programme manager at Sussex Learning Network, said: “We know that a lot of students in Year 13 start to really panic at this time of the academic year if they haven’t got options lined up, and this year that feeling has been exacerbated by lockdown disruption to much of the transition advice they would normally receive.

“The message of our webinars is clear – don’t give up and don’t feel you have to grasp at anything available. There’s still time to make a great, informed choice.”

The ‘There’s Still Time’ free webinar will be hosted on Wednesday, May 26 from 6pm to 7pm and is open to all Year 13 students and their parents and carers.

During the session, members of Chichester College Group’s Higher Education team and Uni Connect advisors will give impartial advice on every aspect of student life, outline the wide range of courses still open to applications across Sussex and beyond and explore other training options to consider.

The session will also feature an open Q&A session enabling students and their parents and carers to ask questions about college and university application processes, the benefits of higher education, how to negotiate the clearing system, student finance and what the student experience is likely to be as we recover from COVID.
